If you find there isn’t a WI in your area or you can’t find one that suits you, and you know a group of women who are keen to get involved, you might like to start a new WI yourselves. Contact the Cornwall Federation office to find out how to start a WI.
New WIs are forming all over the country all of the time. The very basic requirements are a group of around eight or more interested women, three of whom are willing to assume the officers’ roles of President, Secretary and Treasurer.
How do I go about it?
Please contact the Cornwall Federation (contact details below) who will put you in touch with a WI Adviser. A WI Adviser is a specially trained volunteer WI member who has extensive knowledge of the organisation, and who will be able to explain the process involved and guide you through all the initial steps.
